Dentofacial Orthopaedics

Dr Amra specialises in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics.

Essentially, orthodontics entails the management of tooth movement. Dentofacial orthopaedics involves the guidance of facial growth and development, which generally happens during childhood.

Appliances are frequently used in these treatments. The standard braces for orthodontics - and other specialised appliances like headgear, facebows and expanders - depends on what facial abnormalities are present. Sometimes orthopaedic treatment may precede conventional braces, but often the two are used simultaneously.

So if your child gets braces and headgear, he's undergoing orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics.

Being skilled in both areas, Dr Amra can diagnose any misalignments in the teeth and jaw and the facial structure. He can also devise a treatment plan that integrates orthodontic and dentofacial orthopaedic treatments.
